Wandered down to the O’Neills open mic for a short time, before catching Jemma and Annie at Solid Air’s Pink Moon.

The Neon Mile Cellar BarSoon The Neon Mile come on, who are who I’ve come to see. Conrad introduced Tom Collier’s album Red Wine And Tangerines when he was in the solo project guise of Matilda Mother. Now Tom’s found a band, rebranded as The Neon Mile, and they’ve reworked that album’s material for a live set.

Synth keys are still underpinning the twin guitars, bass and now added drums. There is also other material from vocalist & keyboardist Aaron. It all fits into the sort of sad rock mode, meaningful yet not dirge, beautiful melodies providing a backdrop. It’s good, I’m enjoying it.
